Stephanie is first, and says nervously that she doesn't want really short hair. Well, girl, no one does. Downstairs, David threatens FRANKIE with clippers, from which the child leaps away like he's been hit with a stun gun. I don't blame him, and neither does the stylist -- he just wants to trim it up and put in some layers for movement. Back upstairs, Katy is to become a redhead, much to her shock, and Holly's hair is going short, much to no one's shock. Mr. Cutler says she needs to be ahead of the curve, and a short cut will make her stand out. Why they can't see that she stands out now, I don't know. What would be wrong with maybe a little signature Vidal Sassoon cut? Maybe her bangs are too short? I don't know. So, they're cutting it. Meanwhile, while FRANKIE sits under the heat lamps, Casey goes Dr. Frankenstein on him, hamming it up with some brain-transfer jokes. "You will not just be this egocentric little monkey!" he cries. "You will be...a supermodel!" It is quite funny, and I have to wonder if Casey is trying to laugh through his tears -- his own "new look," which he claims to love, ain't really working for me. It's straight and lank and makes him look older and too...German, or something.
Upstairs, almost everyone loves their new looks, especially Jacki, who has had her rat-ass extensions removed and, looks like, new ones put in. "This should have been the first thing on the bonfire," Cory smarms, throwing a pile of fake hair on the floor. Meanwhile, Holly is having to come to terms with her new pixie. It is, truth be told, stunning. Her eyes look even bigger, and she is just beautiful. Niki is thrilled, but Holly doesn't seem to believe all the compliments she's getting. With red-rimmed eyes, she says she just doesn't feel as sexy as she did before.
"Amazing transformations," Tyson tells them, "but it's not over yet. I've got a surprise for you at the house." And what a surprise it is -- the guys are getting waxed. Professional spa ladies are there with robes and slippers and...vats of hot wax which cause the boys to preemptively shudder. "Which one of you guys are gonna be the first to confess," the spa lady asks, "that you need your butts waxed?" Sheepishly, Ben, Ronnie and Casey raise their hands. Ben and Ronnie are the first to go. Adorable. Please tell me this is the first time they've seen each other's butts. Of course, they scream and laugh through the pain. FRANKIE (who also has a freakishly long torso) howls as his face goes beet red, especially when they WAX HIS NIPPLES ON TELEVISION. You know...what is the world coming to? When their turns come, Perry and Casey clasp white-knuckled hands in agony. So cute. "I'm a beaten man," Perry tells the camera with tears in his eyes. "It was like getting lashings." Man, I feel you. "Was it nice and relaxing?" Ben jokes, and walks away, giving Perry a slap on the back, causing him yet a new layer of pain. Poor boys. Welcome to womanhood.
